Abstract

The preceding chapters demonstrated the variability of stages and processes within the sponge taxa. At the same time, they revealed certain developmental features characteristic of sponges only and not found among other metazoans. In this chapter, these features are treated in ontogenetic rather than taxonomic perspective.
